Duchess Jutta of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (Auguste Charlotte Jutta Alexandra Georgina Adophine; 24 January 1880 – 17 February 1946) was a member of the House of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and the consort of Crown Prince Danilo of Montenegro.

Duchess Auguste Charlotte Jutta Alexandra Georgina Adolphine of Mecklenburg was born in Neustrelitz, the youngest daughter of the then Hereditary Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Adolf Friedrich and his wife Princess Elisabeth of Anhalt. Along with her sister Marie, Jutta was raised by governesses and had little contact with her parents. The atmosphere of Erbgrossherzog Palace was noted for its rigor and need for etiquette. A scandal broke out when her 19-year old sister became pregnant by a palace servant.

Through the influence of the German Emperor, William II, her marriage to the heir apparent of Montenegro Prince Danilo was arranged. Hours after her arrival at Antivari in Montenegro she converted to the Orthodox faith. She was accompanied by her future brother in law the Crown Prince of Italy, Victor Emmanuel as she made her way to Cetinje for her wedding. She married Prince Danilo on 27 July 1899. After her marriage and conversion to Orthodoxy she took the name Militza.

During the First World War, Montenegro fought against the Central Powers which included the country of her birth, the German Empire. These links did not stop her from being a target; the villa in Antivari where she was staying was bombed by Austrian aircraft. After the war, the Royal Family established a government in exile after Montenegro was incorporated into the new Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. Her father-in-law King Nicholas I died on 1 March 1921 and her husband succeeded as titular King of Montenegro. He only held the position for a week before abdicating in favor of his nephew Michael.

Jutta spent the rest of her life in exile. She and her husband lived in France where Danilo died in 1939. Jutta died in Rome where her brother-in-law King Victor Emmanuel III reigned.

  • English Classics Furniture Round Table With Leaves On Outside
    This is an elegant round table with leaves on the outside that was recently hand crafted in England. From the stunning flame mahogany to the horseshoe shaped leaves, everything on this piece boasts beauty and classic style. The round table without the leaves measures 60″ in diameter. Adding the 10.5″ leaves around the outside increases the size to an impressive 81″ in diameter, enough to seat at least 10-12 comfortably. The use of flame mahogany for this table has been very well done. Veneered in “pie slice” sections creates a lovely pattern and really allows the natural beauty of the wood to shine through. On both the table and the leaves you will find a contrasting band of satinwood with an ebony black line inlay. This is a traditional combination of woods that gives the round table and outside leaves a timeless air. A wonderful hand rubbed finish provides a deep and rich sheen on the top as seen in French polishes. Underneath the top is a sturdy birdcage pedestal base. This is the perfect base for this table as it provides both stability and minimizes interference with chairs around the table. Each of the four legs is fluted. At the end of the legs you will find brass caps and casters. Installation of the leaves is quite simple. There are four leaves total. Each one is marked with a number to match corresponding wooden runners underneath the top. Simply hold the leaf in position and pull the wooden runners out. They will slide into grooves under the leaves. Finally, brass clips are inserted underneath to keep everything tight. The top and pedestal of this round table with leaves on outside do separate to make moving it inside much easier. This is a beautiful piece of furniture, in a very hard to find design. It will make a lovely addition to any dining room!
